Delightful milk chocolate hair like foliage on this low growing sedge from New Zealand. Excellent for gravel gardens and edging beds in sun. 30cm.
Unfortunately many of these New Zealand sedges are often wrongly named. Carex comans is distinctive with it's very fine foliage, usually only c. 1mm across which is arranged in a strongly arching form making a low wig-like hummock.
Ideally suited for drained but not dry soil Carex comans will take quite damp places but not waterlogged.
